Pictures not showing in Powerapps

Good Morning

 

I am busy creating a lookbook/catalogue similar to the demo you get when you start with Powerapps. 

I have created a SharePoint list where this will run off as well as a document library where all the pictures are stored. This may or may not be the correct way to approach this and I am open to suggestions. The aim is that this is self-sufficient with the users being able to upload the data onto the SharePoint platform via a pc. But that the mobile app is read-only. We achieve this easily enough by hiding the edit and add buttons on the cards, effectively removing the third card from the process.

 

Currently, I have three issues.

One, the three pictures do not pull through to the mobile app. There are three collum's in the SharePoint list which are formatted as a picture field, with the link being the one created when you click share on the picture in the relevant document library.  The app works if I just put in a link to one of our websites as a test. I think the issue is that the url points to the aspx calling the file. I cant see where the direct link is.

Secondly, we would like to have it as an embedded scroll in the second card rather than listed.  

However, if this is not possible, then we need to have that card hidden if there is no data in that field. Something like this: If(ThisItem.'Picture Reference 2') IsBlank then false

Hi @Gilbertr14 ,

 

1. This is expected behavior.  Please try with the below workaround about how to retrieve the images from a SharePoint Picture Library:

2. This cannot be achieved so far.

3. Try:

DataCardName.Visible=If(IsBlank(ThisItem.'Picture Reference 2'),false,true)
